Centre of Chinese Culture and Arts

Centre of Chinese Culture and Arts (CCCA, Chinese: 匈中文化艺术中心, pinyin: Xiong Zhong Wen Hua Yi Shu Zhong Xin) is a non-profit-making organization established by Hungarians, a community of people who share a great interest in getting to know Chinese culture and traditions, through practicing various Chinese arts. This association works in Hungary, Europe. Since its establishment in 1995 the association preserved its unique way of operation which has always been based upon mutual esteem and respect, while through the years the association showed great progression in many ways. Being successful in several aspects of Chinese culture, art and sport activities, nowadays it provides a special opportunity for those who are interested in practicing. Since 2003 the association is the official representation of the authentic ways of martial arts (see: [http://www.rgm.hu KungFu Department - 体育和防病健身 功夫学科] ). Their exploration of the tradiational branches of art is also unique – with the partnership of several other Chinese organizations it creates a living, world-wide alliance. Their everyday work is helped and monitored by both Chinese and Western teachers and masters, who provide us with an always reliable source of wisdom and knowledge which plays an important role in the future development of this Institute.

= Making of Value and Community =The Centre of Chinese Culture and Arts organises working partnerships with several Hungarian and international nonprofit organisations and official Institutes. Following counties give "home" for those partnerships:

The CCCA has friendly relations with several Eastern and Chinese non-profit-making organizations, thus members are becoming the center of Chinese culture in Hungary, Europe. As a community the CCCA is more and more successful in reaching the goals:

*A deeper and purer sort of representation of Chinese culture and arts
*Enhancing Chinese-Hungarian (Chinese - European) friendly relations (with our partners and partner-organissations);
*Enhancing the culutural exchange between the two countries, creating real opportunities to show their unique features;

Beside the traditional trainings the CCCA provides a sort of continuously growing help in organizing Chinese / Hungarian cultural and social events. For all of those joining the association the members offers the direct opportunity to experience China, Chinese culture and arts and its represenatatives too hand-in-hand with them, from an extraordinary point of view.

The CCCA's Board, the Leadership

The Board contains seven leaders. The leadership of Center for Chinese Culture and Arts consists of people who are committed to Chinese culture and practice these arts actively. Their mission is to represent pure Chinese culture on more deeper and deeper levels and the instruction of Chinese arts widely – endeavouring to make cultural exhancge even stronger between the two countries. From 1 September, 2006 the association created a new range of duties which helps to preserve and cultivate Chinese – Hungarian values and traditions in a better organised atmosphere. The valuable work of our members and the leadership contributes directly to the development of the improvement of our members’ and the associated people’s life.

In the Community, physical trainings are often combined with teachings – sometimes with the participation of respected masters and teachers. For years now the practitioners appear with success in Chinese cultural festivals and programmes. Other Chinese organizations located in Hungary have also appreciated their knowledge and joined their activities. With the boradening of these relations the members also felt it necessary to be able to adopt ourselves to the current needs quickly and to be always up-to-date. The Centre of Chinese Culture and Arts also has the opportunity to prove the skills that are needed to organise and lead such a team in multi-cultural surroundings too. Being practitioners they also know and understand the subtle features of those sometimes quite challenging Chinese – Hungarian (Chinese - European) cooperations. Walking this way they strive to meet the cultural and social claims and fulfil our goals.
